2019 Tannum Crab Classic
Raised just shy of $35,000 for our
local families with a disability
CATCHING CRABS FOR FAMILIES IN NEED
The Tannum Crab Classic (TCC) is proud to say we have just completed our tenth anniversary! The annual event which raises much needed funds for local families living with disability continues to grow each year.
TCC consists of two mini events that culminate in the final weekend with the
TCC Family Fun Day.
Four years ago, we introduced the Ladies Night Out, which now kicks off the TCC event program the weekend prior. This addition has increased the event profile and fundraising tally.
The following Friday approximately 50 TCC members head down to the Lillie’s Beach for the Crab Campout. Our members compete to catch the biggest mud crab for Sundays crab races at the Family Fun Day; whilst also providing a relaxed platform to discuss men’s mental health issues. Throughout the camp the blokes raise money amongst themselves all adding to the final fundraising tally.
Following the Crab Campout, on the Sunday, the local community head down to Dennis Park Boyne Island to enjoy the TCC Family Fun Day. The fundraising continues here with raffle tickets and bidding on the big mud crab race. The family orientated afternoon is a great way to bring the community together and help local families in need.
With the continued dedication of our members, volunteers, sponsors and local community, 2020 is set to be even bigger!
Thank you Message from the Big 'E'
FOUNDER & CHAIRMAN TTC
“This year’s tenth Anniversary Crab Classic was a fantastic event which raised $20,000 to generate two University Scholarships; supporting two people with a disability to have tertiary study opportunities. Combine that with the additional funds raised for charity organisations and we’ve generated close to $35,000 directly back to the local Gladstone region.
I’m very proud we’ve been able to give back to the local SES, Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service, Boyne Tannum Rotary and the Seagulls Rugby League Club. They are all huge supporters of the event and really pull the TCC Family Fun Day together.
There are many people behind the scenes, but I would like to personally thank Brenda Smith and her team for organising another smashing Ladies Night Out. Also, a big shout out to Kim Cooke for her tireless work on TCC’s Facebook, advertising and the web page.
A huge thank you to the TCC event crew and all our sponsors and supporters. Without you guys it couldn’t happen! A big THANK YOU to all those that attended and dug deep to help a great cause.”
